Many romantic incidents have been related of these long months of siege: the stories of the Countess's use of a dust-cloth to repair the damage done by the English siege-machines to the battlements, and of her prophecy, made when the Earl of Salisbury brought a "sow" or shed fitted to protect soldiers in the manner of the Roman testudo, "Beware, Montagow, For farrow shall thy sow",

I fancy, from something she told me the other day, that she hasn't the slightest belief in psychic phenomena, I wonder if she feels the same after what happened yesterday and last night?" "I can tell you exactly what Miss Farrow thinks," interposed Varick. "I had a word or two with her about it all this morning, after we'd examined the servants in the white parlour."

Both Miss Farrow and I are very anxious that she shouldn't be up to any more of her tricks while she's here. People don't half like it, you see. Even I didn't like it." Somehow it was a comfort to Varick to talk freely about Bubbles to a stranger Bubbles had got on his nerves. He would have given a good deal to persuade her to leave Wyndfell Hall; but he didn't know how to set about it.

Pegler smiled a thin little smile. In the last twelve years Miss Farrow had several times invited her to sit down, but of course she had always refused, being one that knew her place. She had only sat in Miss Farrow's presence during the days and nights when she had nursed her mistress through a serious illness then, of course, everything had been different, and she had had to sit down sometimes.

Time is of the utmost importance in these cases!" But Donnington, try as he might, was too spent to obey; and it seemed an eternity to them all before Blanche Farrow reappeared, helping an old man to drag a short ladder along the muddy path.

"However, I can understand and honor your reluctance to reveal Mrs. Fenley's failings. Now, please tell us exactly what Mr. Fenley and Mr. Robert said to each other in the hall last Saturday morning." How poor Farrow, immured in his jungle, would have gloated over Tomlinson's collapse when he heard those fatal words!

"What can be happening downstairs?" As Panton made no answer, Mr. Tapster replied for them both: "The doctor thinks one of the servants got drunk last night." "Yes, that must be it, of course. I'll go down and see who it is," she said composedly. But Dr. Panton broke in authoritatively: "No, indeed, Miss Farrow! If it's what I think it is, the fellow will probably be violent.

"Well, these here marks was made by Farrow an' meself, say about ten forty, or a trifle over an hour after the murder; an' I have no sort o' doubt as these other marks are a day or two days older." "You might even put it at three days," agreed Winter. "Then it follows " began the Inspector, but checked himself. He was becoming slightly mixed as to the exact sequence of events.

The colt's lame leg, or the farrow o' the big sow? Gad, boy! don't you ever think about the gal, except when I put it into your head?" "Oh, that!" exclaimed Alfred, with a smirk of well-assumed satisfaction "that, indeed! Well, I think I may say, Daddy, that all's right in that quarter." "Spoken to her yet?"

They had met in a strange way, some ten years ago, in what Miss Farrow's sterner brother-in-law had called a gambling hell. And, just as we know that sometimes Satan will be found rebuking sin, so Blanche Farrow had set herself to stop the then young Lionel Varick on the brink.
